Ever wanted to contribute to social causes while traveling? Now the opportunity is here! Join us on an adventure as part of Cartagena tours and contribute to a good cause while also getting to see the city!
From the first look, Alex Rocha may seem to be just a local guide who shows travelers around Cartagena. However, this entrepreneur is also the foundation of the Cartagena Social Foundation, which teaches English to children in the city’s poor neighborhoods. As you may have guessed, his tour around the city is hence also geared more towards the reality of the city and the authentic way of life of Cartagena, without giving concessions to the idea of tourism.
This authentic tour will bring you to some of the real local way of life, including allowing you to meet the very children who are beneficiaries of Alex’s project. Learn about the culture and the social reality in Cartagena in an authentic, non touristy way – come join us now!
Duration: Half day
Start/End location: Cartagena, Colombia
The authentic city tour will start off in Getsemaní, an old and picturesque neighborhood of Cartagena. You will then visit the Bazurto Market, rarely visited by tourists and where you will find all kinds of food, cloths and other products – there is even a special spice market offering natural healing pharmacies!
After that, you will head towards the village of Boquilla, a traditional fishing neighborhood on the seashore. There, you will embark on a canoe trip with local fishermen, passing through mangrove tunnels and swamps before touching land and getting to know the project in which Alex gathers children from the poorer San Francisco neighborhood.
Last but not least, you will have lunch at the local family’s house, before heading back to Cartagena.
After you book your experience, you will receive a confirmation email from us confirming that your payment went through. You will then be connected directly to the tour operator, in case you have any further questions. We are also happy to answer any questions about the tour, or travel in general in your country of destination.
